Here is the e-card we made.
The other is their ongoing project to curate the contents of everybody's pockets. Send a picture to info at jaszakschatten dot nl to be a part of it all.
This is a book I designed last year which is also about curating pockets, in this case the pockets of a little girl over the course of a year: Bella's Pockets.
Paper bag (big enough to fit over your head)
transparent plastic (office supplies or cellophane), preferably red
decorating supplies (any kind you like)
1. Try on your bag and estimate where you should cut the hole for your eyes. Cut a rectangular hole in your bag, roughly 3 and 1/2 by 4 and 1/2 inches. (Cut the bottom off your bag if it's too long for your shoulders).
2. Cut a square of transparent plastic about 4 x 5 inches.
3. Tape the plastic over the hole. (If, like us, you attach it from the inside of the bag, you will have trouble folding the bag flat to draw on it, so gluing on decorations in the next step will work best).
4. Decorate. You can experiment with different types of helmets. We tried one with an antennae and one with a microphone. Have fun on the moon.
Are you familiar with Ed Emberley? He has written almost 80 books for children and is a Caldecott award winner. In many of his books, he teaches drawing with very simple shapes and lines, and shows you how to combine these same shapes and lines to create a princess or a dragon or mouse. He is fantastic.
It looks like he is currently updating his web site, and it has activities. Here is an excerpt from his biography (on his web site):
"I am an old grandpa kind of guy." So simple, so nice!
Here are two books we have at home, Ed Emberley's Drawing Book of Faces from 1975 and Make a World from 1972.
The layout of the books is very simple: long strips of step-by-step instructions. We wanted to post a couple of details, and the long shape doesn't fit the screen very well, so (with apologies to Mr, Emberley) we are stacking instructions for an admiral, a helicopter and a blimp.
After the Easter eggs have all been dyed and hunted, you might be looking for something to do? If you have any food colouring left, you might make "Colored Honey" from the Pooh Cook Book, a very old, loved and used (as you can see) book from our shelf.
Ingredients: honey and vegetable food colouring.
Only use a tiny bit, especially if you are using red dye, which can add a little bit of flavour if you add too much.You might use a dipped toothpick to transfer the colouring to the honey.
This would be nice on leftover hot cross buns tomorrow morning, don't you think?
